The Adventures of Ellie the Elephant is not your typical fiction story of a talking elephant and her friends. Nope, this series is adventurous, creative, and engaging for children and adults alike! Recently, I received paperback copies of Ellie’s Best Beach Vacation Ever and Ellie Goes Back to School written by Elle and Marci Fair. These two books are only part of The Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series.
The amazing pictures of Ellie the elephant and her friend Pudgy the penguin on their adventures of a beach vacation and going to school are creative and fit very well into the storylines. Ellie and Pudgy show their creativity along and show their love for whatever it is they’re doing.
It is especially enjoyable to see Ellie and Pudgy prepared for the travel to their beach vacation with puzzles and travel games for the trip, sunglasses to wear, and sand toys to use at the beach. In the same manner, Ellie and Pudgy bring their backpacks and lunches when they go back to school.
What I found most intriguing in these books are the real life adventures anyone can take. In Ellie’s Best Beach Vacation Ever, the storyline takes the readers to a bookstore, one that sells this very series! And in Ellie Goes Back to School, we spend some time at a “Buddy Bench” that is a bully-free zone. Buddy benches are being donated across Atlanta, Georgia and will soon spread further!
When I read these books to my son, he loved pointing out the pictures and how Dllie and Pudgy dressed their parts on each page, even when it came to riding a bike and eating lunches. He got fully engaged in the storylines and wished his friends went on such fun adventures, too! And to see at the end of each book is an opportunity to share an adventure with your friend on social media! What a great way for children to share their own adventures!
Like mentioned in the beginning, I received these paperbacks complimentary. I received them for an honest review. I highly recommend this book series to anyone willing to go on an adventure with an elephant and her penguin friend!
